    Three prayer requests: One for a good friend who is about to have triple bypass heart surgery. One for a dear friend and his mother: she is elderly and broke her hip. Recovery is not going well. One for yet another dear friend whose teenage daughter is about to have brain surgery to try alleviating some consequences of a triple annuerism and petite stroke. Fourth one: for me to be strong enough to help them. Thank you all!

    A San Diego abortion business that was the site of an abortionist’s “bizarre demonic rant” against a pro-life activist has been closed down by a chain of California clinics, according to Operation Rescue. Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger said this week the Miramar Road site, which is part of the FPA Women’s Health chain, was closed Nov. 17. It was abortionist Robert Santella who confronted pro-life activist Zephaniah Mel with a pair of surgical scissors, a rant that included hissing and growling, and a confession that he loved killing children. “That behavior, along with complaints of malpractice and botched abortions, resulted...

    It's always everyone else requesting prayer. Tonight it is me. My 42 yo daughter is having surgery to repair a genetic defect in her sternum. It is buckling and putting pressure on her heart, lung, stomach, esophagus, etc, etc. It is called pectus excavatum. She is in Cleveland Clinic, 300 miles from her children, family & support system. Her DH is with her. They will be cutting her sternum and pulling it back into place and adding titanium plates to hold it there. The standard for doing surgery is a 3.25 measurement. Hers measures 7.2.

    Hello to all of you who have been so supportive to my husband. I have never visited Free Republic before, Just listened to him talk about how great this site is. I am not sure if he is going to make it through the rest of the year. It is so hard to watch a strong “take charge” type of person lose 60 Lbs. and diminish into a shell of his former self before my eyes. He trips and falls a lot. Fred has been the love of my life for over 35 years. Thank you so much for your...

    Beloved Friends, especially those outside of Papua: here is an urgent, current prayer request: Please pray for our co-workers in Papua. Their 12 year-old son is sick with what appears to be appendicitis, and they've had to wait all night for a plane to be able to come get them from the village as planes here cannot fly at night. The mom is in the village with her four kids, while the dad is currently in town. This morning, the weather is terrible and so far the plane has been unable to land to pick them up. There is a...

    My brother, Michael, passed yesterday after an 8 year long battle with cancer. His wife was at his side when it happened. He was comfortable and in no pain. I'd like to thank all of you who sent your prayers, thoughts, and good wishes to his family 2 weeks ago. Michael was a fine man. He leaves behind two children who are both in their teens. This is a devastating loss for them. He was a loving father and devoted husband. I've honestly never seen two people more in love with each other. I think the happiest I ever saw...

    Hey everyone. I'm kind of going through a hard time right now. I have a history of really nasty cancer in my family and I just got the results back from an ultrasound and there is a mass growing in the center of my body right under my sternum. I go on Monday for to schedule the CT scan to see what I'm dealing with. I'm doing a pretty good job of keeping a brave face up in front of my family but I'm an anxious mess. I was born Catholic but have since lapsed but I do try to...
